HC Deb 26 June 1940 vol 362 c462W
Captain Markham

asked the Minister of Supply whether he has now considered the state of affairs at Wolverton, London Midland and Scottish Railway, carriage works; and whether he can make a statement on the subject?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

Urgent steps are being taken, in conjunction with the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Labour, to secure the most effective possible use of capacity in Wolverton and other railway workshops which is surplus to essential railway requirements. My right hon. Friend hopes to make a statement shortly on the matter.
